National recognition has arrived for Mount Saint Mary’s University's student-led wellness initiative. In November 2019, the University’s peer wellness advocates were named Outstanding Peer Group of the Year by the National Association of Student Personnel Administrators (NASPA) — the largest peer education group in the country. NASPA also invited the Mount to speak at its annual conference in Baltimore, Maryland, and share successful wellness strategies other schools could replicate.
College of Saint Mary (CSM) has approved the construction of its new state-of-the-art $18 million athletic facility, which will provide its students and the greater Omaha area with a place for women to excel and grow through athletics. Attached to the Lied Fitness Center, CSM’s Wellness & Athletic Center (WAC) will dramatically expand access to year-round training, recreation and performance spaces for students, athletes, and the surrounding community.
